Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Rear axle seals have now failed for the 3rd time. Nissan dealers tells me Nissan will not permit them to replace seals alone. Nissan corporate headquarters fix is to replace entire axle assembly at a cost of approximately $800 each axle. Nissan is obviously aware of a design problem, but will not take the lead to fix, but put the cost of a defective design on the back of their customers. Nissan service representative told me there is a flaw in the materials used in the differential and differential is not venting properly thus causing the seals to prematurely fail. I fail to understand why a recall has not been issued since this is a common problem on Nissan Titan trucks that Nissan will not face. Sounds like Nissan is having a Toyota moment and burying their head in the sand.

Passenger side rear axle seal leak observed on 2/3/2008. Fluid leak covered bottom portion of brake rotor. Vehicle was taken to dealership and axle seal was replaced under manufacturer's warranty. Possible safety issue as differential fluid on brakes could impact brake function and lead to failure. Dealer service department explained that several of these seals have been replaced on the same type of vehicle (both driver and passenger sides), but they have little explanation as to the cause of the problem.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 24,000 miles
Right rear axle seal blew out and leaked differential fluid. Differential fluid leaking on rear brake rotors which could cause brake failure, which was a major safety concern to me. At time of failure at 24,000 miles no suspension modifications had been done to vehicle. Also, the rear differential oil will slowly leak and cause the rear differential to lose fluid and fail. As this seems to be a very common problem with the Nissan Titan, Nissan should address this issue and offer a permanent fix so we will not be faced with the safety issue in the future.

My vehicle is a 2006 Nissan Titan SE crew cab 4X4. I was looking at my new tires when I noticed fluid leaking at the end of the axle where it joins with the wheel. Fortunately, there was no failure. I took it 2 miles down the road to central valley Nissan upon noticing this problem (I was down there within 30 minutes). The service manager said they have seen this on Titans before. He said it is a rear axle seal that has failed. I was told this happens because the axle warps. I made an appointment to have this fixed the next day (I am going down first thing tomorrow morning). I am hopeful that this problem will not occur again with my vehicle. Based on internet searches, this problem seems to be fairly widespread. Sincerely, michael james

I was changing rear differential oil found leaking form the driver side axle seal and pinion gear shaft front seal. If axle seal leak gets worse it might get on to the ABS sensor and brake disk and emergency brake (little drum disk) and cause serious safety problem. Also if I did not know about this and kept driving this axle only hold about 2 quarts of gear oil, all oil can leak out and cause differential failure problem suddenly and it is a serious safety issue also. Leaking oil is also a environmental hazarded. So many people seems to have this problem, by researching on the internet.

Left rear axle seal blew out and leaked differential fluid. Differential fluid leaking on rear brake rotors which could cause brake failure, which was a major safety concern to me. At time of failure at 8000 miles no suspension modifications had been done to vehicle. Also, the rear differential oil will slowly leak and cause the rear differential to lose fluid and fail. Nissan replaced spacer axle (43070-7S200), bearing (40210-7S210), and seal (43252-7S200). As this seemed to be a very common problem with the Nissan Titan, Nissan should address this issue and offer a permanent fix so weould not be faced with the safety issue in the future.
